Mixed-signal fault equivalence: search and evaluation
Marcelino Bicho dos Santos,
Silicongate, Lda –
The aim of this paper is to reduce the fault simulation effort required for the evaluation of test effectiveness in mixed-signal circuits. Exhaustive simulation of basic analog and mixed-signal structures in the presence of individual faults is used to identify potentially equivalent faults. Fault equivalence is finally evaluated based on the simulation of all faults in a case study – a DCDC (switched buck converter). The number of transistor stuck-on and stuck-off faults that need to be simulated is reduced to 31% in the structures already processed by the proposed methodology. This approach is a significant contribution to make mixed-signal fault simulation possible as part of the production test preparation.

Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
The program and more details are available here.
